Evaluating models of care closer to home for children and young people who are ill. Final report.

The existing evidence base to support development of care closer to home (CCTH) is weak in relation to clinical effectiveness, approaches and models, potential costs and benefits to families and the health service, impact on those who use CCTH, and how CCTH is best delivered and organised.
